Join Catapult Editor-in-Chief Megha Majumdar for an Editorial Craft Talk

October 29, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

As both a novelist and an editor at Catapult, where she acquires literary fiction and narrative nonfiction, Megha Majumdar is intimately familiar with the publishing process from both sides. In a talk that blends career advice with process-oriented tips, Majumdar explains how writers might enlist an editor’s toolkit to sharpen and strengthen their own work, and gives an inside look at the publishing process, providing insights into pitching, submitting, writing book proposals, querying agents, and working with editors. She also discusses her own thoughts on craft, from the role of ethnography and anthropology in fiction-writing to developing a propulsive, fierce, and entertaining plot.
